Here is the completed group.  The individual coins will be below.
group obv.  

The difference in color behind the coins is from the scanning can used.  I believed the tag board that was in the can was not completely flat.  So the scanner picked up shadows.  

Overall, it was an interesting group.  The Salonia already had the nasty scrapes at about the 1 o'clock spot.  They were under the dirt.  The Diocletian had some missing spots of the nice green patina....made things very difficult.  That darn little Fel Temp was a bit fargone, and the the Valentinian II reminded me of a coin that had been partially flattened.  Then there was the Phoenix...some nice comments about that below!

Wow, perfect job.  I'll be adding my own entry soon.  Might as well stop cleaning 'em, I don't think I can top that.

The radiate phoenix looks more like a goat sitting on top of a mountain.  Grin

Well, a goat on a funeral pyre would still be a sacraficial idea I think...maybe even more towards the pagan end.  Either that or it was a really fattened phoenix for a nice dinner! Grin

 Funny... I didn't see a goat. I saw a rooster....
I fail the ink blot tests all the time!!!  Nice coins TKE. I especially love the Diocletian, and the Vows is sharp as well.

I ordered my set for this round from Joe, but it hasn't arrived as of yet. Might actually be a GOOD thing if I miss this round. Some stiff competition out there!   Grin
